Yes. We have clients sending us their hair or nail sample from Europe, the Far East, Middle East and from the States. We can test for anyone in any of these regions. Once you have your test results with your Supplement Plan, you will be able to buy your supplements from a European or US company over the internet or from a health food store in your country.

By the way, we are not affiliated to any particular supplement company. We just make sure that the supplements in your Supplement Plan are the best quality at the most affordable price for you. We are not getting paid for recommending any particular supplement company so we are unbiased.

This depends. In my experience, clients with hair loss problems have issues with toxicities, and these toxicities cannot be eliminated in two or three months. In most cases, clients need between 4 and 8 retests to get rid of the toxins so that their hair can start to recover. Retests are a lot cheaper than the original first test though; usually about half the price of the initial test.

By the time you notice an unusal amount of hair loss, things will have gone wrong in your body for quite a while. It can take months, even years of bad nutrition, illness or hormonal imbalance before the body reacts with hair loss.

Hair loss can be caused by a great many things. Here are just a few of them:

Stress, anaemia, hormonal imbalance (after childbirth; during menopause; taking the contraceptive Pill; coming off the contraceptive Pill; polycystic ovaries); prescription drugs (for acne, anti-coagulant drugs, cholesterol regulating drugs, antidepressants, amphetamines, antifungals, beta-blockers, high blood pressure drugs, HRT, anabolic steroids, steroids generally, anti-inflammatories, arthritis drugs, thyroid drugs, ulcer drugs, chemotherapy for cancer; anti-viral drugs); shock (physical or emotional); a fall; thyroid problems; kidney problems; crash diets; eating foods you are intolerant to; fungus, parasites or other invasive organisms; toxic metals; vaccinations, smoking.

Between 70 and 100 hairs a day would be considered normal. Remember, though, that every person is different. If you normally only shed about 50 hairs a day, 100 would be abnormal.

Yes, it normally does, so please don’t panic. Give your body two to three months to go back to normal. In the meantime, you can support your body with the right foods and supplements that form part of your Supplement Plan when you send in hair or nails to be tested..

Your body has produced an alopecia areata patch. In many cases, this round patch will grow hair again by itself, but it is better not to rely on it. Buy yourself a good organic aloe vera gel and apply it regularly in the morning and in the evening to the bald patch. Apply it gently and don’t rub. You will have to do this for at least six to eight weeks.

What will be crucial now it for you to find out why your body cannot hang on to your hair in that area of your scalp. There is a reason for this hair loss and it is important to find out why your immune system is suddenly in overdrive.

A hair/nail sample test can establish what is going wrong and which supplements you need to take to detox.

There is a problem with toxicity in your body, and conventional lotions such as Minoxidil will add to the toxic load as it does not just stay on your head but will be absorbed through the scalp into the body.

You need to find out what the original toxic load is that caused your hair to start thinning in the first place. One of the culprits could be the food you are eating! There is more information about toxicity on page 1 of the order form for the tests, or read more in-depth information in Regrowing Hair Naturally which you can buy from the Books section or get the e-book Help Your Hair To Regrow Naturally for your Kindle, Apple or other e-book reading device. For a link to Kindle, click Help Your Hair.

If you buy the e-book How To Help Your Hair To Regrow Naturally by clicking on Help Your Hair, you can ask for a free MP3 general self-hypnosis track to be sent to you. The e-book is available for all e-book formats. The MP3 track is very useful for stress management and relaxation.

You will have to address the cause of your stress. A good counsellor or hypnotherapist will be able to help you with this. At the same time, you can start supporting your body by avoiding eating certain foods, by taking supplements that help your body and mind calm down and by doing some visualisations which help body and mind to calm down.

For more in depth information and a tailor-made Supplement Plan for your particular hair loss problem, have a hair or nail sample test done.

Yes. There are a couple of medical tests that would be useful. You should check whether your thyroid is functioning normally and also whether you are short of ferritin, an important component of iron.

When I test your hair sample to establish which supplements you need to take, the supplements will begin detoxing your body from metals, invasive organisms or any other toxins I found. This means that over a period of a few months, your body chemistry changes. As more toxins are eliminated, your body does not need as many of the detox supplements as before and your hair has a chance to grow better again. When I do a retest for you, I can often reduce some of the detox supplements and replace them with others that will further hair growth.

Yes. You can use microfibres such as Toppik. You simply choose the colour that is closest to your own hair colour and then shake some of the powder onto your scalp. This will make it look denser immediately.

There are also other products on the market which you will find if you google ‘hair fibres’.

No, not true. It is toxicity that is passed down the generations, not faulty genes. If a mother has amalgam fillings in her teeth while she is pregnant, her body will detox via the baby. That is one of the reasons why some women feel much better during pregnancy than after the baby is borne.  Also, if the father’s sperm contained toxins, it will have an effect on the fetus. The good news is that because it is NOT hereditary, baldness can be reversed in many cases.

Yes. Recreational drugs add toxicity to the body and, above all, to the brain. This creates havoc for the liver and for your hormonal levels.  When you take recreational drugs, you are giving yourself a bit of chemotherapy each time, and you know what happens during chemotherapy …!

It depends on how many fillings you have. If you only have one or two, that might be OK, but if you have more than that, be very careful. Under no circumstances should you have any amalgam fillings removed without the dentist using a safety equipment such as a suction unit in front of your face and a gumshiele. Also make sure that you are doing a detox program before, during and after the fillings have been replaced. If you have lots of amalgams that will be replaced, your dentisti will probably want to do one quadrant (for example all the amalgams in the lower left side of the jaw) at a time and then have a few weeks break between doing the first quadrant and the second one (for example the lower right side of the jaw).

Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease in which the white blood cells attack the hair follicles as though they were foreign bodies. Alopecia areata is a auto-immune problem which starts in round patches on the head. You may also find it useful to watch my YouTube video where I explain Different Types of Hair Loss.

In alopecia androgenetica, the picture is that of ‘male pattern hair loss’ which is now increasingly found in younger men and in many younger women.
Signs of alopecia androgenetica in a man are receding temples with perhaps a bald patch on the crown. In women, it occurs as a thinning of hair on top of the head, sometimes with a receding hair line at the front as well.

Health Kinesiology (HK) uses muscle testing to identify stresses on the individual’s energy system. Once the stresses are identified, acupuncture points are held to bring the body back into balance so that it can heal itself and regrow hair. However, it is still necessary to address any toxicities in the body and to detox them with the help of an individual Supplement Plan. Even if two people have the same type of hair loss, their Supplement Plan will look different.

Yes. You should definitely avoid sugar, wheat and dairy from all animals. Soya is also a common problem food for many people with hair loss problems.

Wheat can be a problem food when you have hair loss. If my  test shows that you do not tolerate wheat, it means that you have to avoid this grain because if you continue to eat it, it will compromise the functioning of your digestive system. The undigested wheat causes the formation of mucus in your body which will then prevent the absorption of nutrients into the blood stream. If there are not enough nutrients getting through, the body will use the few remaining nutrients to feed your brain and your heart only, but not your hair follicles. This is why it is crucial that you really avoid wheat products or your hair won’t stop falling out and won’t be able to grow back.

Propecia has a great number of side-effects which do not disappear even when you stop taking this drug. There are law suits going on in Canada and the United States by people who have been damaged by using Propecia and still suffer from serious side-effects five years after stopping this drug.

Yes. It is very useful if you can get better circulation up to your scalp by moving your shoulders in an active way (rather than just hanging head down from a tilt board). Have a look at our YouTube video Exercises which will show you two of the most important ones, but there are more exercises in the book Regrowing Hair Naturally which you can buy in the Books section.

I know it is soul-destroying when your hair is falling out because it completely undermines your confidence, but please don’t give up. If you need a boost of morale, please watch my YouTube video Don’t Give Up! and Some Success Stories.

However, just watching a video will not get your hair back. Do something about your hair loss, and do something SOON. If you are a man, you only have a limited number of hair growth cycles in your life, so you need to act soon. Women don’t have a limited number of hair growth cycles, but you will still need to do something soon because hair can fall out quickly but takes a long time to regrow again.

Find out why your hair is falling out and what natural supplements you need to take to counteract any toxicities in your body. You can do it with us here by having a hair/nail sample test done, or you can do it with someone else, but DO SOMETHING which does not involve you putting chemicals on your head because that is just wallpapering over the cracks.
